I don't think that it is disabled in the prom, nor are there any jumper 
settings(that I can recall). I'm sure it's just "Marketing BS".   You 
can likely get the FRU, but not the "X"-number part.

I bought a bunch of V210 systems for my Grid Engine, and sun shipped the 
proc's separately (the systems included 1, plus they sent the other 
processor - heatsink, memory etc. as a self install.)

Ensure that the memory banking is correct, or I think that the second 
processor won't work - iirc.

Good luck!
